The baby has grown, Bill III and Cris got married (Atlanta, October) and we have had an exciting few months at the Sharktank (home) as well as Tanque de Tiburon (da boat).
First, Ms Mina Rose is now 8 months old. She has been a doll and we have enjoyed some visits to Mesa to play with the baby and a little babysitting, as well. Here is a flash update in pics:
Here first portrait at 7 days:
Amber helped me babysit for a week in August, I think,,,altho, refused diaper duty...
oh, Mina had a brace on for 2 months for a potential hip dysplasia - which has thankfully resolved thanks to Cristy's diligence in using the brace 24/7 - it did make diaper changing a challenge.
a week with them and turned 2 in August:
And Grandma gets another few days of babysitting in Mesa in January -
before we head south to sail for the spring. :-)
